    Default Showing which checkboxes are selected in Html email

    I am new to FormMail, but I do have my form and HTML email working correctly.

    I have multiple checkboxes in my form where the user can check multiple choices. I would like the HTML email to return the results showing the checkboxes exactly like it is on my form. Currently, the HTML email is coming through with the checkboxes, but not telling me which boxes were selected by the user.

    Here is the link to my test form: http://www.millerswesternadventures....ew3-22-11.html

    Can someone please help?

    Thank you in advance,
    Melody

    Default Re: Showing which checkboxes are selected in Html email

    getting the checkboxes to look exactly the same in the email is hard coz it requires a lot of logic in ur html email template

    i think u can do this with tectite's advanced tempalte feature, but AFAIK it's not a free product

    wot is easy is to get a list of the values selected by the user

    to do this, all the checkboxes have to have the same field name, with [] after the name, like this:
    HTML Code:
    What food do u like?
    <input type="checkbox" name="Food[]" value="Hamburgers" />
    <input type="checkbox" name="Food[]" value="Chips" />
    <input type="checkbox" name="Food[]" value="Salads" />
